Doing a video about “Chasing Performance vs Racing To the Bottom” later tonight. Check tomorrow on Type1CrossFit.com #Health #Respect
“CrossFit is in large part derived from several simple observations garnered through hanging out with athletes for thirty years and willingness, if not eagerness, to experiment coupled with a total disregard for conventional wisdom. Let me share some of the more formative of these observations: 1. Gymnasts learn new sports faster than other athletes. 2. Olympic lifters can apply more useful power to more activities than other athletes. 3. Powerlifters are stronger than other athletes. 4. Sprinters can match the cardiovascular performance of endurance athletes – even at extended efforts. 5. Endurance athletes are woefully lacking in total physical capacity. 6. With high carb diets you either get fat or weak. 7. Bodybuilders can’t punch, jump, run, or throw like athletes can. 8. Segmenting training efforts delivers a segmented capacity. 9. Optimizing physical capacity requires training at unsustainable intensities. 10. The world’s most successful athletes and coaches rely on exercise science the way deer hunters rely on the accordion.” -Greg Glassman

“Are you well?” Do you want to know what under the hood? ( @wellnessfx )
To make things easier for everyone you will now start seeing, on the current website, this: Warmup Mobility Skill Strength WOD Each will have it’s own piece to it. So now when everyone comes in, you don’t have to ASK what mobility work to do. The focus will be there for you to see. Alas, if you have your own business you need to fix, feel free. (Coach Eric)

“Memorial Day Murph” Are you ready and able to leave it all on the floor for your Memorial Day?
Happy Memorial Day Weekend to everyone! If you are interested, leave a message or shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) about Memorial Day Murph! “Murph” is named after Lt. Michael P. Murphy was a United States Navy Seal who was killed June 28, 2005 along with four other Navy SEALS after exposing himself to enemy fire and knowingly leaving his position of cover to get a clear signal in order to communicate with his headquarters. He provided his unit’s location and requested immediate support for his element and then returned to his position to continue fighting until he died from his wounds (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_P._Murphy). He was awarded the Medal of Honor for these heroic actions. “Murph” 1 Mile Run 100 Pullups 200 Pushups 300 Squats 1 Mile Run For Time – After reading his story … are you ready?
